Best newbie strain?
    #908493 - 09/26/02 12:20 AM (19 years, 3 days ago)

I've never done this before -
are there any strains which are more reliable and/or more hardy/less likely to be screwed up than others?
I'm not asking for the BIGGEST BADDEST MOST POTENT -
just want to get decent results, then perhaps worry about more 'interesting' strains at a later time.

Thanks!

I would recommend EQ.

That's what I started with.

Thanks to both of you, but alas, mere minutes after posting, I found out selling spores is illegal in my State :frown:

Now I feel pretty stupid ~and~ left out...

Questions like this show that you didn?t really get familiar with what shrooming is all about , right?...
Anyway: Generally try Cubensis first. And from reading Vendors-pages (Haven?t grown yet either) Mazatapec and Equador should do the trick for you.
Somebody correct me if im wrong!

all of those would probably do well, but i've recently been very impressed with the mexi cube. heavy pinner with few aborts. fruits aren't giants, but there are so many it really doesn't make a difference in final quantity imho.

This is like asking; "what is your favorite beer or whiskey?"

Differing strokes for differing folks.

One thing is constant. Beer is beer & whiskey is whiskey.

What is easy & what you find you like, is going to be depenent on YOU.

Best bet is to try 3 -- 4 -- 5 differing strains & decide yourself.

I "like" EQ, simply because it was my first strain, it was easy to grow, it was potent.

One the other hand, after trying many other strains. EQ is still highest on my list.

But, your the one that has to do it & decide  :wink:.

They are all good.

I agree with Six Tango I posted the very same question when I started and was told to try EQ and I have now grown out about seven strains and the EQ gave the best yeilds.

Firstly there is no such thing as Psilcybe Astoriensis or Ps.Thaialensis or what ever you posted.
Some cubensis spore-races are poorly domesticated and dont have as stable genetics as others.
Try the older, established spore-races first like PES Hawaiian or PES Amazonian, Tasmanian and the like
